Dogs Trust in Leeds has several dogs and puppies and these are the ones that currently need rehoming (all photos from Dogs Trust Leeds):
Alfie the miniature poodle has unfortunately suffered a lot of upheaval. He may take a little time to settle into a new routine but once he does he will be a fantastic little companion who will not leave your side. Alfie really struggles with being left on his own and will need somebody with him all day. He particularly forms bonds with females so would be better placed in a home with at least one female owner around in a multiple person, adult only household. Alfie will need a home with a secure garden and ideally not lots of stairs as he requires medication for poorly back legs. New owners need to be aware of an ongoing cost and the Dogs Trust vet will be happy to discuss what to expect and the costs involved. He is polite with other dogs when out and may share his home with another quiet, small dog for company. He travels well in the car and is housetrained. He will need to sleep on the bed at night and he loves a good sofa snuggle. Alfie would suit a less active household as he is unable to go for walks.
Three-year-old Dexter is a dream to walk out and about and he just loves to sniff out the environment. He is finding the kennels quite stressful and can become quiet wound up which has resulted in some unwanted behaviour. His new owners must be aware of this and the Dogs Trust training team will help both his owners and Dexter through the move into a new home. Dexter needs an enclosed garden in an adult only home. His owners will need to be around all the time initially to help with the move and to settle him in. Once Dexter has found his feet, you will see a totally different dog - happy, relaxed and great fun to be around. Dexter will need several home visits to his new home with one of his handlers so his new owners must live less than an hour's drive from the Leeds centre. He is a very friendly dog who is happy to meet new people but would need to be the only dog in the home.
Digger is a very bubbly nine-year-old Terrier Cross. He is a really affectionate lad once he knows you. He needs to meet you many times and slowly build that bond, but once it's there he'll snuggle and play with you all day long! Sadly Digger has had little experience of home life and this has left him with a few anxieties. He's very sensitive to noise, so his home MUST be a quiet adult only household in a peaceful area away from busy roads and outdoor noise. He cannot share his home with any other pets but he is sociable around the right dog and will walk nicely together if introduced correctly. He'll need a lot of patience and understanding from his humans but if you are looking for a project that will eventually yield a fun and very smart dog then Digger could be your boy! Digger's new family will need to have a passion for dog training and be willing to work with our training and behaviour team throughout his transition to a new home. He'll need a fully secure garden with a four-foot fence.
Dottie is a gorgeous, vibrant boxer that is coming up to six years old. Dottie is dog social, but she is very worried about unfamiliar people and she needs to follow an introduction plan in order to get to know the new people in her life. Dottie has been rehomed and returned due to her behaviour around people she doesn't know, so because of this, we're looking for experienced dog owners who are looking for a bit of a project! Dottie has been working really hard with the training team and now she is ready to meet her new family and step out into the world. Dottie loves meeting dogs out and about, but she will need to be the only dog in the home. Dottie has got several health problems which she is on medication for, including hypothyroidism. New owners must be aware of ongoing vet bills and the Dog's Trust centre vet will discuss her health issues with you. Dottie loves to play and absolutely adores cuddles and affection from her favourite people. She is looking for an adult only home.
